Les Courmettes 2023

A holiday for English-speaking Christians supporting mission in France

From Sunday 17 to Saturday 23 September 2023

A Rocha France is a Christian environmental charity, part of A Rocha International. It’s easier to pray well for people you know personally. As gospel-workers here in France, we are thankful to the Lord for those who pray for us and support us. We thought it would be great to have an extended opportunity to get to know some of you better… and for you to get to know one another better!

We are inviting you to join us for a week at Les Courmettes, our conference centre. A Rocha would like to extend a particular invitation to supporters of France Mission, an organisation with which we work closely. Several of the speakers are connected to France Mission and its partner organisation in France, Perspectives.
